Cooler- stock wraith stealth that comes with r5 2600
GPU- xfx Radeon rx 580 8gb
PSU- Thermaltake smart 500w

Check the flow of your case fans. Are they positioned right?

Open task manager and check if there is something running in the background which taking up a lot of cpu usage.

I would advise you to re-apply thermal paste on to your CPU and GPU and maybe it will solve your problem.

will do, do you think I should my fans for the top vent of my case as Intake since my case doesn’t have much ventilation in the front?
 
There's no real front air intake. Take a look at the front panel and tell us where the 3 front fans are supposed to pull in air from.
Technically, there's some slots in the front right edge and an opening at the bottom. That's not exactly ideal for airflow though.

I did notice a review for this case mention that it might be worth moving the front fans to the inside of those mounts to improve airflow, so that the fans don't block those openings as much.
